Health Care Repeal Vote Fails In Senate

Read the HuffPost & AP report here

Are the Republican­s making the same mistake that Obama did when taking power, focusing on (repealing­) health care instead of the economy? What were they expecting to get out of this, that hopefully some conservati­ve Democrats would by a small chance vote with them? All they did was take up more time in Congress when they could get other stuff done.

The article points out that Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell wants to force the Senate Democrats to vote along party lines, which potentially gives them leverage in the upcoming 2012 election.
